Recently my attention was caught by a commercial for Olay Vitamins. This commercial boasted that their vitamin packages contained the correct nutritional supplements to improve the look of your skin, hair, and to fight the seven signs of aging. Being a fan of the other Oil of Olay
products I thought that I would give their product a try, just to see if it could improve the health of my hair and skin. Olay vitamins can be found at a number of retailers including online health stores, department stores, and even many supermarkets. The price of this product is about $12 depending on where you purchase it.
The product that I purchased was the Olay Vitamins Total Effects 7X dietary supplement package for beautiful skin and wellness. It contained a thirty day supply of four different supplements. These supplements included a multivitamin, CoQ10, vitamin E, and alpha lipoic with green tea. Each day you take out one of the plastic bags containing a day’s supply of dietary supplements. All of the supplements are small and easy to swallow. The largest of the pills is the multivitamin, which is scored for splitting if you have trouble swallowing. The following ingredients are found in the multivitamin: vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, folic acid, vitamin B12, biotin, pantothenic acid, calcium, phosphorus, iodine, and magnesium. The CoQ10 contains the following ingredients: zinc, selenium, copper, manganese, chromium, molybdenum, chloride, and potassium. The vitamin E contains vitamin E. The final supplement in this package contains: boron, nickel, silicon, vanadium, alpha lipoic acid, coenzyme Q10, green tea leaf extract, and lutein. If you have allergies to any of these ingredients then you shouldn’t take this product. Also if you are on any medications you should consult with your doctor to make sure that this product won’t interact negatively with your medications.
Truthfully I didn’t expect much from this product when I first bought it. However, within just a few days I noticed that my hair, which had been damaged by color treatments and heat, was silkier and healthier. I also noticed that it had a lot more volume and bounce. My skin too seemed to clear up and improve in tone and texture. The only problem that I had with taking this product is remembering to take them in the morning with food. If you don’t eat when you take this product the dietary supplements will upset your stomach. To avoid this problem simply eat something with the product, even if it is just a piece of toast. Also to improve the results seen from this product it is highly recommended that you drink water throughout the day. The other drawback is that there are four supplements that you have to take. This can be a problem if you have troubles swallowing, or if you have a sensitive stomach, or if you have gastric bypass surgery. To reduce the problems associated with taking a lot of pills, you can spread out your doses throughout the day. Take the multivitamin with breakfast, the CoQ10 with lunch, the vitamin E supplement with dinner, and the alpha lipoic with green tea before bed.
